I couldn't help but laugh at the sight o the boys faces, learning that we were their bodyguards.
"B-But your a g-girl." Zayn stuttered, running his hand through his messy black hair.
I narrowed my eyes, quickly looking around the hall my eyes landing on a small table a couple feet away. I shot Kien a look and within seconds he knew my plan. He rushed behind me throwing me towards the table.
"Woah!" "What the fuck?" The One Direction boys cried as I flew at the table. With just a split second left in time I turned letting my hand hit the table using the force to flip in mid-air. I landed back right in front of Niall. Only two inches separated us. I could feel his rapid breathing against my face. I smirked putting a hand on his chest. He looked down at my hand, lying right over his heart.
"How was that?" I smirked pushing away.
Niall was staring at me, his eyes dark with an emotion that I couldn't quite read. The other boys had looks of awe in their eyes.
"Yea." Lucas said throwing an arm around me. "They're impressed."
"Ok so how are we splitting up?" Lucas said turning his back on the One Direction boys.
"I'm with Kien." Jacob said.
"Why can't I-" Kien started.
"Don't you finish that sentence." Jacob said. "I know how you feel. Lucas your with Maggie."
"Ok." Lucas said picking up my bag along with his. "We got room 25-5."
I watch him walk down the hall before turning back to Jacob and Kien. "Meet you two down by the pool, I need a swim."
Kien wrapped his arms around me pulling me close. "See you in 10?"
"Sounds good." I laugh turning to follow Lucas down the hall. Niall, Zayn and Louis all stood in my way, arms folded.
I let out a slight huff before forcing a smile. "Can you three move please. I have to go get ready."
Niall smiled back, his blue eyes sparkling. "Let me take you there." He linked his arm with mine. I wanted to fight it, but it just felt right. "Maybe later I could take you on a tour of the hotel."
I looked back to see Kien looking ready to burst. His fists were clenched so tight they were almost white. I mouth, 'I'll be fine. It's just an act.' But was it.
Niall brushed his blonde hair out of his eyes shooting me a smile as we walked to my room. The silence wasn't awkward, it was peaceful.
I stop at the door marked 25-5. "This is my room."
Niall slipped his arm out from mine easily. "I heard you were heading to the pool. Could me and the boys join you four?"
"That would be great." I beamed, forcing a happy bounce into my voice.
Niall's face lit up. He leaned down kissing my cheek softly. "See you in ten Maggie."
With that he turned and walked to his room, 25-4. I stood there holding my cheek, still feeling his lips on my skin. Lucas popped his head out, only wearing his boxers. "What's taking you so long?"
"Sorry." I murmured, pushing past him. "I was just held up by Niall."
Lucas shook his head softly. "This is going to be a tough mission. They're clearly not bad guys."
I took a deep breath before turning to face him. "No. There is always a reason, and weather we know it or not it is out duty to fulfill our job."
Lucas nodded. "I just hope our instructor doesn't want us to drag it out to long, he said he would send a letter when he thought it would be a good time to kill him, and he's going to send us ideas on how to get closer to the boys."
"Closer?" I groan. "Do we have to?"
"To pass." Lucas said throwing me a light blue bikini with pink designs. I stick my tongue out at him before heading to the bathroom to change.
The suit was new and slightly scratchy. At the academy I only worn one pieces, but out here bikinis were the way to go. I stepped out of the bathroom, uncomfortably. I turn to Lucas. "Do I look ok?"
Lucas looked up, instantly his cheeks grew red. "You look amazing Mags."
I grab an Irish flag towel smiling. "Really? It's not revealing?"
Lucas let out a laugh grabbing a red towel to go with his British flag swim trunks. "Trust me Mags, I have never seen you look so go in a swimsuit."
I felt my cheeks grow warm as he lead the way out of our room. I knocked lightly on Kien and Jacob's door.
"Come on slowpokes!" Lucas shouts from my side. "We don't have all day!"
Kien comes out first, in a simple blue suit. His mouth drops when he saw me. "M-Maggie?"
I feel me cheeks grow even warmer. "Is it that good?"
Kien rubs the back of his neck, like he does whenever he is nervous. His cheeks growing red too. "It's beautiful."
Jacob came out holding two towels, dropping them when he saw me. "Really Lucas!" He cried. "You had to pick this one?"
Lucas shrugged. "It looks good on her."
I put my hand on Jacob's shoulder before he can lunge at Lucas. "It's fine Jacob. I like it."
He shot me a look, leading us to the elevator. "As long as we are the only ones who get to see you in it."
I wait till we're in the elevator going down to reply. "The One Direction guys are meeting us down there by the way."
Instantly the three boys freeze. "They're what?" Jacob yelled.
"They can't." Kien growled. "Why are they coming."
I shrugged hopping off the elevator as quickly as I could. "Maybe cause I invited them."
I started off running towards the pool, with the boys hard on my tail,
"Maggie Elana Rose." Lucas roared grabbing me around the waist, pulling me over his shoulder. "Why didn't you tell us?"
I folded my arms, pouting as Lucas carried me towards the pool. "I did."
"I mean earlier." Lucas growled, pushing the doors to the pool open. "We could have used the warning."
"You got like a two minute one." I said. "Now put me down!"
Lucas gently out me down next to him. The pool lay before us empty. "It's so much bigger then the one at the academy!" I gasped.
"I still bet I could beat all of you guys," I challenged.
"Your on." They said, as we lined up on the edge.
"On your mark, get set, Go!!" Lucas shouts as we dive in. I instantly kicked out to about half way before coming up. I move my arms smoothly, but quickly though the water. I kept my flip turn small but quick, just like our instructor taught us. My lungs were on fire and my muscles ached. I forced my last bit of strength out as I hit the wall.
I lift my head to the sound of cheering. I turn to see Niall, Zayn, Louis, Liam and Harry standing on the side of the pool looking at us in awe.
"You guys are fast!" Liam said dangling his feet in the water, faster then any of us.
I lay back in the water, letting myself float on the surface. "We train a lot."
"And she means a lot." Lucas said, before pushing me under. I let myself go down, wrapping my arms around his feet, pulling them out from under him.
"Nice try Lucas." I laughed flipping my hair out of my face. Lucas came up spurting water out of his mouth.
"I'll get you one day Mags." He said, faking being mad.
I stick my tongue out swimming away hiding behind Niall. He shot me a look, but I didn't see, I was too busy watching Lucas. Suddenly a huge wave of water came over my head, sending Niall and I flying. The water was churning around us as it carried us away. I closed my eyes fighting my instinct to fight. A dark shadow flashed before me and something slimy wrapped itself around my leg. I let out a screaming fighting to get away.
